  • 4 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 4 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce (or coconut aminos)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 wild caught salmon fillets patted dry
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • Chopped parsley for garnish, optional


  • In a small bowl, whisk together the Dijon, honey, soy sauce, garlic, salt, and pepper until smooth. Set aside.
  • Season salmon fillets with salt + pepper. In a nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Cook salmon fillets, skin side up, for 5 minutes. Flip the filet and cook for another 4 minutes. Make sure to cook salmon until internal temperature reads 145 degrees F on a food thermometer.
  • On the last minute, brush the honey mustard mixture evenly over the salmon fillets. Serve salmon with arugula, rice, and any remaining honey mustard sauce. Enjoy!
